Re-starting the NOTCam PTR after a Power Cut

The NOTCam PTR compressor stops when the external power is cut and needs to be re-started manually. The PTR is found in the old machine room of the telescope.

From the telescope entrance (with spiral staircase) go through the right door (not the control room) and immediately down to your right is the PTR compressor.

To re-start the compressor

  1. Press the orange RESET button
  2. Press the green START button for a couple of seconds, the compressor should now have started
  3. It's a good idea to return to the compressor after 10 minutes just to check it is still running. If not then just repeat the button pressing procedure.
